Fundraiser with fling
IF the skirl of bagpipes and throb of the drums send your blood racing, February 13 is the date to remember and Birch Carroll and Coyle Cinemas is the place to be.
There will be pipes and drums in the car park as well as drums and pipes on the screen.
All this highland music is coming to you to help raise funds so local pipers and drummers can compete at the World Pipe Band Championships in Glasgow, Scotland, later this year.
‘On the Day’, the story of the Spirit of Scotland pipe band, will have its first Australian screening at 10am on February 13 and the NSW Highlanders will play in the car park from 9.15am.
The NSW Highlanders is a pipe band formed in 2007 by the Wingham Services Club Pipes and Drums with the support of the Coffs Coast Pipes and Drums.
Now a representative band that draw members from local community pipe bands and individual musicians, the NSW Highlanders focus on creating exciting opportunities for pipers, drummers and Scottish enthusiasts.
Last year they hosted the Australian stage of the Pipefest Global Challenge in Coffs Harbour, which will now become an annual event known as Pipefest Australia.
The band is preparing to return to Glasgow this year for the World Pipe Band Championships and is developing a stage show, which will make its debut early this year.
Limited numbers of movie tickets are available for $15 for the screening of On the Day.
